So, the other morning I was making myself a hot cup of tea. I reached into the refrigerator to get some half and half and found myself pausing when I saw the jar of our Smooth (and delicious) Almond Butter. Hmmm, I thought. What would happen if I added a teaspoon of Almond Butter to my morning cup?
I make my own tea blends and love to experiment in the kitchen so that wasn’t as far-fetched a thought as you might expect. I put a teaspoon into my hot tea, stirred well and tasted. Not bad. So I added a second teaspoon. Wow! That was delicious! Next time I’m going to try the Chocolate Hazelnut Butter!
I believe you could use any black tea you like in this recipe—English Breakfast, for instance might work especially well. But I’m drinking herbal blends more often these days. Here’s my personal recipe:
Equal parts Rooibos and Honeybush (or 2 parts of one or the other)
1/2 part Cinnamon Chips
1/2 part Orange Peel
1/2 part Cloves
Combine the above ingredients in a jar and mix well. Use 1-2 tsp per steaming mug of tea. Add the ingredients to a tea strainer and pour hot water over. Steep, covered, for 5-10 minutes. Add 1-2 tsp of Maisie Jane’s Smooth Almond Butter or Chocolate Hazelnut Butter. Stir well! Add honey and milk or half and half (if desired) to taste.
